    Hey whats up here's is the deal for Macworld 2009. The Mac Mini will not get updated anymore because it has been a computer to get people to switch. The Mac Mini has been up for sale for a very long time and a lot of people already have switched and knows what the Mac OS X OS is like already. At Macworld 2009 there will be a new apple product with a new name no more Mac Mini. This will be a mid-size apple tower not a mac pro with a cheaper price around the $1000 range. People want a mid-size tower that will do the work like an iMac which of course a cheaper price. There will be no more mac mini because of the new apple product. If this does not happen then the Apple TV will merge with the mini if that's the case. Overall, I do not see an update for a Mac Mini because either one of these will happen. Also No Blu-ray at all for the Apple Computers because it is not needed and a waste on a computer only good for HDTV. There will also be no Mac Tablet because if there is that is way out in the future. Who knows maybe a Apple HDTV?. That is the rundown I think for MacWorld 2009.

    Your saying what many other people on the Internet and in these forums are saying.

    Again with the repeating.

    Repeating what Steve Jobs said publicly in an interview.

    Again with the repeating of Steve Jobs.

    Try being original and predict something new and different or something not publicly announced in an interview of Steve Jobs.

    And what do you base this information on? Or is this just a guess of what Macworld 09 will be?

    The iMac does pretty well in the market, right?

    Steve Jobs mentioned customers prefer all-in-one computers (e.g. iMac and MacBook-line). I doubt that there will be a mid-size desktop.

    Here's the deal.

    Brace yourself...

    No, there won't. The original Macintosh 128k was an all-in-one because Steve doesn't like the idea of the end-user being able to upgrade the machine.

    He totally hasn't changed his mind about that. There won't be an easy-to-upgrade, cheap, xMac.

    I don't mind "I think x, y, z will happen" but just making guesses and garnishing them as if they were fact is irritating.

    Sorry, I think your predictions fall short, kind of like the Mets every September. ;)

    I doubt Steve Jobs is a NY Mets fan so I will pass on putting any faith in this 'prediction'.

    :cool:

    While I think that the mini will be discontinued. All evidence seems to point to that. I really don't think that apple will be making a mid range tower any time soon. I would like to be wrong. But it is unlikely that apple would make a computer that would reduce the sales of both iMac and mac pro. And I don't think they could get away with charging apple type prices for a mid range tower.

    I was waiting for something to fill the gap between a mini and a mac Pro. Finally gace up waiting for the mid sized tower and just did what Steve wants and bought a 24" imac

    What about the Apple II?

    What's the deal with the secrecy anyway? I can understand protecting something that's revolutionary like the Ipod, but why do they do that with ordinary, mundane product updates? Is there any valid reason other than to **** with people who are trying to figure out when to upgrade? I'm building a Hackintosh and if they really were planning on coming out with a tower I might wait. I'm not going to wait if I don't know.

    So the competition don't know what is comming.
    Incase they can't deliver the product or features on schedule.
    So sales of existing systems don't stall.

    I don't think Apple needs to make a 'headless' imac for a little under $1,000. People are buying the iMac all the time. If you want an imac but without the screen, you buy the mini or you buy the powermac. That's the market. I think Apple is doing fine with that market. Apple doesn't really want the market of people who want to upgrade every component in their computer. That's what windows computers are for

    haha, great post!

    I am trying to get our office to go all Mac but without that midlevel tower or updated mac mini we are not able to. Most people use dual monitors, no 2nd monitor looks nice with the iMac because of that iMac chin. Mini needs to be updated and it would work perfect. Macpro is too expensive for basic computing needs.
